Definition  of Writ of Seizure and Sale
“查封与拍卖令” 的定义

The Writ of Seizure and Sale (WSS)  is what we regard as  the most effective  mode for the enforcement of a money judgment.


The writ is a direction to the Sheriff to seize in execution the movable properties of the judgment debtor within Malaysia as may be sufficient to satisfy the amount of the judgment debt, interest and the costs of the execution.
该令状是一项指示给予一名法警查封判决债务人在马来西亚的动产, 以便足以还偿判决债务, 利息和该执行的费用.

Execution // 执行

The WSS will start the execution  by the seizure and thereafter  sale of the judgment  debtor’s  movable  properties.  The sale is   usually by a public auction, conducted by the Sheriff or a licensed  auctioneer which is  sufficient to satisfy the judgment debt and costs of the execution.   An auction is usually conducted 14 days after seizure.
“查封与拍卖令” 将通过扣押判决债务人的动产开始执行然后售出。这种交易通常会在法警或持牌拍卖师以拍卖会的方式进行, 以便足以偿还经法院裁定的债务, 和执行的所涉费用。 拍卖会通常会在扣押后的十四天进行.

Usually at least one  security personnel  will be posted to ensure that the judgment debtor does not remove the properties seized.

The writ further directs the Sheriff to pay the plaintiff the amount levied (less  his own costs and charges),  state   how he has executed it, and  send a copy of such statement to the plaintiff.
令状里还会指示法警把征收到的金额交给起诉人 (扣除警长自费和费用所涉的金额),以及描述他如何执行该指令并且呈交一份该报告的副本予起诉人。

The judgment creditor may  enforce the judgment by way of a winding-up petition against the judgment debtor without first exhausting  other methods of execution.
